Successive Detection of Telomerase by IHC and Assessment of Telomere Length by Q-FISH in Paucicellular Cumulus Samples from Cumulus-Oocyte Complexes Obtained in Assisted Reproduction Programs

Received: 13 May 2022;  Published: 23 September 2022;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2203164


This paper suggests an approach for the use of a single paucicellular histological sample to investigate two characteristics indicative of the cell’s functional potential: 1) the content of telomerase reverse transcriptase (TERT) and 2) the telomere length. An algorithm has been suggested for the successive detection of the catalytic telomerase subuni [...]

Received: 11 June 2022;  Published: 22 September 2022;  doi: 10.21926/cr.2203029


Cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase (CGTase) is a multifunctional enzyme that hydrolyzes the α-glycosidic bond between two sugar molecules and synthesizes cyclodextrins (CDs) and other transglycosylation products. It is a ubiquitously present extracellular enzyme that offers the CGTase-producing organism the sole right onto starch substrates over other [...]

Outcomes of Ecuador’s Rights of Nature for Nature’s Sake

Received: 30 March 2022;  Published: 22 September 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2203035


The rights of nature have been widely discussed at a philosophical level for a long time, but examples of its practical application are quite rare. Ecuador is the first country to incorporate this concept into its constitutional foundation and put the theory into practice. However, implementing entirely justifiable rights of nature is hindered by factor [...]

Received: 18 July 2022;  Published: 09 September 2022;  doi: 10.21926/obm.genet.2203163


High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) and COVID-19 pneumonia are different diseases, but HAPE-susceptible individuals (whose susceptibility often has a genetic basis) can also suffer from severe COVID-19. We hypothesized that certain pathogenic mechanisms might overlap if such a coincidence occurs, since these patients could react to alveolar hypoxia [...]
